    I think its just Web-Masters dying for attention and traffic.

    Hardware Rep for AMD over at Overclock.net explained the attention whoring from the websites with the miss-information.

    they never really specified that it was Sea Islands that was shipping.

    They were referring to the 8000 OEM series southern islands refresh.

    I hope this is not another HD 6970 replacement for the HD 5870 based on the same process. This better be more like a HD 4870 to a HD 6970 performance improvement senario.

    Honestly, I see AMD winning this year, regardless of when cards come out.

    They are literally making the chips that everyone in the industry will be using for the next few years in consoles, thus everything will be optimized for AMD chips from the get go.
     
    xvi and Pehla say thanks.

    There are a number of places that said last year that Sony's "Obris" is claimed to have an AMD APU-like chip in it as well.

    HUGH mistake on AMD's part, especailly with GK110 about to be released by Nvidia.

    With all their latest financial issues AMD has to be very careful about picking fights they can win. A head-to-head with Titan isn't one of those. Not enough market to make it worthwhile. At best you can expect an official 7990 launch to go against Titan (current 7990s are AIB's).

    The brunt of GPU sales is at the 200-300 price range and AMD is well covered there.

    EVERY GAME WILL BE MADE to use amd gpu primarily. I cant see it hurting and it should make porting easier for devs and bare metal gpu codeing might return
    Oh and its clear to anyone keeping up with things that any 8xxx series xard comeing out now is purely an oem rebadge not nx gen and this rebadge debacle happens often in both camps

    True that, but you don't think Nvidia can't produce some "cut-down" $300-350 GK110 cards that should absolutely crush Tahiti(provided GK110 is as strong as early reports are saying)?
